My big brother Max has always loved cooking. When we were both very young, he was given a book called Keep Out of the Kitchen Mum and together we spent hours recreating recipes from its pages without any adult interference.
One of the recipes was for chocolate refrigerator cake: a simple, no-bake cake made from chocolate, biscuits and butter. As children, we'd triple the recipe to fill a giant rabbit-shaped birthday cake mould and serve it on a 'field' of wobbly green jelly. For everyday eating, this loaf-shaped cake is a little more practical.
This recipe is from Kate's new book Homemade Memories: Childhood Treats with a Twist published by Orion, 2015.
